Agency considers rules regarding enforcement of new law, workers argue for strong rules to ease enforcement of workers’ Right to Work protections
Indianapolis, IN (July 11, 2012) – With free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys, two Indiana workers filed formal comments with the Indiana Department of Labor (DOL) in support of their newly-enacted Right to Work freedoms as the agency drafts regulations for the enforcement of the law.
Douglas Richards, an employee with Goshen-based Cequent Towing Products and David Brubaker, who works for Georgia Pacific, filed their comments this morning.
Both Richards's and Brubaker's workplaces are unionized by the United Steel Workers (USW) union hierarchy. Both workers have refrained from union membership. However, they are still forced to accept USW union officials' so-called "representation," and are required to pay dues to the union as a condition of employment, until their employers' old contracts with the union expire.
